Stay at EEGA: July – December 2017
I am an empirical political scientist from Cluj-Napoca, Romania. I studied International Relations and European Studies (BA) in German at the Babeş-Bolyai University (BBU), Cluj-Napoca and at the Otto-von-Guericke University, Magdeburg (joint MA with BBU). I conducted my PhD thesis within a joint-supervision programme between the Otto-von-Guericke University, Magdeburg and the Babeş-Bolyai University Cluj-Napoca. My research focused on the topic of Regional Participation within European Multi-Level Governance, the influence of Saxony-Anhalt on European decision-making processes and the possible lessons for Central and Eastern Europe. Within the Leibniz ScienceCampus »Eastern Europe – Global Area« scholarship I focused on the Research Area 5: Eastern Europe in Times of Europeanisation and Diffusion, especially on Romania and its development within the EU and globally.
